SLEEP.....HOME....Wonderful Words to my ears!

Last night supper was very good, and the lock-in was a lot of fun. Toward the last half hour I spent there the lack of sleep really kicked in so I gave in and went back to school to find my bed. Sleep was wonderful!

Today has been very uneventful but fun at the same time. I spent the afternoon with my little cousin Jacob!

(I don't know what was happening in this pic but I like it)
Today we spent a lot of time with his new chickens and turkeys. Jacob absolutely loves them, and would spend all day out there if allowed. These creatures amaze me. They are so little, but know exactly what to do to survive. While I was out in the coop today I was reminded that these chicks are just another example of God's creation. These animals are doing exactly what God created them to do. It was a lesson that I relearned today. Am I following out God's will for my life?
I am enjoying being home for just a few days, spending time with my family is always a thing I love to do.

Love ya Jacob you are awesome!
Tonight, at church Bro. Cravens spoke on how there is constantly a spiritual warfare going on, and that we need to be alerted about this. Prayer is a vitial part of our Christian life, without prayer and time spent with God we will be as a wilted flower, useless and not fit. How true this is.

Awake, but wishing to be Asleep

I sit here staring at the computer- why are the right ideas not coming to me? I have a research paper due soon about the Bible and Psychology. Just reading the syllabus the paper didn't sound to hard, but after class I am now officially scared about this paper. If you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate them.

Yesterday was the school picnic, and it was fun to go and relax for awhile. Yesterday consisted of over sleeping, getting to the picnic late, being lazy when first arriving, finally waking up and playing volleyball, horseshoes, softball, and a slightly burnt face.

Oh, how I wish I was in a world of sleep. I believe I fell asleep somewhere close to 2 a.m. and was awake by 5 a.m. Today was the day for the second test in Doctrine of Holiness, and my notes had to be finished, along with other homework that is close to the deadline. Tonight at 5 I'm going to the George's house for supper. I'm looking forward to Amber's special spaghetti, afterwards I am contemplating on sleep or going to a bridal shower..... So many decisions

Yes, I fell asleep last night while doing homework in the 2nd floor Kitchen, and Christy couldn't pass up the moment of finding me asleep with all of my homework.

Sometime tonight I will attain some sleep. At 11p.m. the annual GBS lock-in will begin. I'm anticipating a night full of volleyball, arcade games, and a batting cage. Okay, yes I admit I love to play softball I'll probably spend a lot of time in the cages. Some scary things might happen in the early hours of the morning if I don't get some sleep. I'm looking forward to a night of fun!

Random picture, but it was taking at a random time in the morning by Christy

I tell ya crazy things are quite possible for tonight!

I'm heading home sometime after the lock-in. Going to go do something with my family, and then head off to church for the Revival services. Well, I must run some ideas are coming to my small overworked, exhausted brain.

Brief Update on Life

Yes, I'm still alive but the mountain of homework just keeps pilling up.

This past week was very busy with IHC and VIP day, but the bright part about it was I got to see Carla. Carla and I hadn't seen each other for six years. It was fun to finally be able to see her once again. I also got to see a family that I babysat for, and it was fun spending time with them.
This week once again is going to be a busy week. End of the semester means finishing up homework, and getting ready for tests and Finals. Thursday is the school picnic which should be fun, and then Friday night is the school lock-in. After both of these things I'm going to be heading home Saturday morning. I'm very excited about going home and seeing my family and people from church.

Teen Power seemed to go over well tonight. A few of the workers got up and each talked about one of the Ten Commandments. The teens seemed to listen so hopefully they got something out of it. If you think about it, could you help us pray for the teens that they would be open to God's will for their lives, and that they can say NO when they are tempted to sin. These teens are very special to me and what an impact they can have in their family and community if they only will allow God to be ruler of their lives.
Please pray for these teens they desperately need it. Please check out their blog here

I'm off to be productive now. Goodnight
